WIIM Radio Mailbag: Opening Night Edition

On Opening Night of the new NHL season, we open up about the latest issues for the Red Wings.

It’s NHL Opening Night, and we’re making our own entertainment since the Red Wings don’t suit up until tomorrow night. Want to help keep us entertained? Give us good questions to answer while we record a new podcast episode! Here’s what we have planned so far:

Athanasiou-watch

Andreas Athanasiou is still unsigned, and that’s bad. He’s also reportedly been practicing with the Canadian Olympic Team, which might be worse news for the Wings. But he hasn’t bolted to the KHL yet, and his agent finally caved with Josh Anderson, so maybe there’s hope? Maybe we can talk thru some kind of resolution on this one...

Your 2017-2018 Roster

With the roster pretty much finalized, how do we think it looks as a whole? Will we compete with the best, or sink like the rest?

Around The League

Jagr signed, Stamkos is awaiting his next injury, and at least two Canadian teams look like they’ll make legit runs for The Cup. These, and other stories to watch for outside of Detroit both this week and all season long.

Reader Questions

I want YOU to submit a question for us to answer. The more fun you have with it, the more fun we have with it. Prize of 100 duck-sized Tangradis for the best question.

Crystal Ball Time

We look into the future to see what the week ahead holds for the team.


As usual, we will be recording late in the evening (after 10pm EDT) so be sure to get your questions in while you can. I’ll be joined by Prashanth, Kyle, and our fearless leader JJ. Help us kick the new season off right, and Let’s Go Red Wings!
